Yep; I still think that the folks complaining about all the "whining" (again, I still don't see it frankly) are more upset than the folks they are attacking for being so upset...

Is it OK if I whine about the complainers? Or is only complaining about the Whiners OK, how about whining about the whiners and complaining about the complainers? I do believe I'm getting dizzy . . .

Well I'm goin to Nassau next Friday cause I listened to the recordings uploaded so far and it sounds like a good time, I even put 4/15 on disc and listened to it on our sail today and it was pretty darn good.

Hey Will I even squeezed some '69 bonus tracks in as filler at the end . . . do you venture to '69 on occasion?

Ha, yep, it seems much ado about nothing ("I'm telling you! You are really pissed off and upset about this! Now damn it, just admit you hate me for having fun!").

I know my friends that are going are just loving it, and sure you will too. It certainly beats any number of acts out there these days, and even if not mind blowing, the whole experience will be fun--and I mean just seeing folks, seeing how the band holds up, etc., etc...like going to an old family gathering...at my rest home...er...well, you get the idea.

And actually, I spend most of my time in 68, 70 & 71. Seriously--for the past month I have listened to so much 71 it's coming out my ears (instead of going in?).

I just got in from the Worcester show. I must confess I DID drink the Kool-Aid. Bought another ticket for tomorrow night in the lot directly after the show. Now perhaps sitting 3rd row in the PhilZone has skewed my vision but I have to report for the most part they rocked the F-ing roof off the place.
I had listened to roseland and wasn't impressed, Greensboro was better but still not enough to get me to go. Dc Started getting me excited and C-ville is when I decided I needed to go and see them,.. good, bad, or indifferent I had to see and hear it for myself. Albany I have not heard yet but talked to a lot of people that were there and said it was the best of the tour so far. That was before going into the show tonight.
Highlights from tonight, Feel like a stranger... solid and rocked. GDTRFB... had me dancing in the aisle after being in bed for 2 days with an injured lower back.
Mountains of the Moon... was for me a nostalgic thing. I think they did the best they could with it but you all gotta know Phil just can't sing.
Bird song... made me wanna cry.
China cat - rider was incredible.
As some else posted, Milestones was the highlight of the second set but the Terrapin that followed was hot and not to be overlooked.
The rest was very well done but nothing I would rant & rave about.
Prior to tonight I woulda said they can do better than Warren. After tonight I am soooo for Warren! He is doing his best and it's magical at times. He is not Jerry,.. but He is able to take that spot and play his ass off and do the whole thing serious justice.
They were on fire tonight and I am willing to bet by the time they hit Shoreline there will be a lot more people singing their praise.

Thanks for the updates all who've gone to shows, there are not too many oldster acts I would pay to see but Johnny Winter and The Dead are two of them. Back in the '80s a friend had extra tickets to Chubby Checker and Bo Diddly (I thought "those guys are still playing?") went to the show and it was a blast. Saw the David Byrne show at Radioa City and it was real good but not great - due to the lack of any real Guitar player - D Byrne can play but it is not 'what he does' so to speak. Anyway it seems each time I listen to a new recoding of these guys I get more excited about Nassau - maybe nostalgia as Nassau is where I saw lots Of GD shows and it was ALWAYS fun!!

Off to watch the taped Formula 1 Shanghai Grand Prix now!

Hey PP--that's great to hear! Thanks for dropping back in to let us know...too bad about MotM though...Really love that song.

Think I'll have them play it at my memorial service, if I get one.

i actually feel sorry for them. they all look over at where jerry would have stood, and yes, there stands a fat man, but not THE fat man. i bet it makes them real sad.

listening to the Worcester show...

If they keep improving every night, by Rothbury they won't be melting faces. They'll melt the whole damn audience into a lava flow of molten DNA
